Operation Smile

A smile is the shortest distance between two people.
     - Victor Borge

Every time you smile at someone, it is an action of love, a gift to that person, a beautiful thing.
     - Mother Teresa

There is nothing more beautiful than a smile. They're contagious; smile at someone and they're likely to smile back at you.

Unfortunately, some children around the world are born with cleft lips, cleft palates, and other facial deformities that leave them unable to eat, speak, or smile. For 30 years, Operation Smile has been providing free surgeries for children and young adults. These surgeries are done by medical professionals from around the globe who volunteer their services to change a child or young adult's life and bring them hope for a better future.

This month's Stuff to Scrap designer mega collab has a special goal: To raise money for Operation Smile. Autumn Blessings includes 37 papers, 82 elements, two full alphas, three sets of styles, two 12x12 templates and a blinkie so you can show off that you've contributed to helping a child smile. Designs contributing to this month's collab include BeeHaven Designz, Created by Christin Thomas, JMC Designs, Manda Lane Scraps, Ponytail Designs, Seal Scraps, Shel Belle Scraps, and Scraps by Missy.
If you're looking for an easy to way to scrap, there is a set of 20 coordinating quick pages available.
If you're unable to purchase the kit or quick pages, you can still contribute to the cost of a child's life-changing surgery by purchasing the Operation Smile blinkie.
Please considering donating in whatever way you can. Help bring a smile to a child or young adult's face.
